Here is how Commissioner Andriukaitis needs to act following ECHA’s decision that glyphosate is safe!
Next week, the European Council will consider the European Commission’s last-ditch compromise effort to reauthorise the widely used herbicide, glyphosate. It won’t go well.
Some counter-intuitive thinking. Maybe industry has alternatives to glyphosate that farmers and regulators don’t want. Maybe the NGOs and MEPs are acting as Monsanto shills?
Glyphosate has been called the herbicide of the century. Around for more than 40 years, its low toxic environmental health profile and efficient results have made it a farmer’s ideal tool in fighting invasive weeds and increasing yields.
